Re: Former Redbirds...

BTW, anyone catch that Boston College beat Duke? I realize Hawkins is done...but that's why he went there. Upper level games every night, packed houses, TV and media exposure. I realiz that's an indictment on our program... Hawk may have left to play in a bigger conference along with the greener pa...

Re: Starters/rotation when healthy

We haven't seen much from EC to crown him starter let alone have much of an idea of what he will offer. From the videos we saw he is legit but he is only a freshman and we have not seem him compete against college competition. He is one player we are all excited to see based on his skill set but to ...

How in the world could the workers swap the last letters of State and University to form Staty and Universite? Unbelievable! This had to be done on purpose.

Re: vs Tulsa - 12/2/17 - 3 pm - NBC Sports Chicago Plus

As posted on the other thread, I did not like seeing David not on the bench with academic issues. Hope this doesn't carryover but if he is still recovering then he would have time to turn it around. Has there been an update when he will be available again or is the estimate still toward the end of D...

Re: vs Tulsa - 12/2/17 - 3 pm - NBC Sports Chicago Plus

Agree on MW. He is growing into a solid performer and leader with his D. Love his energy. His defense has always been strong but he is developing into a dependable offensive option. Just think what he will be into the next couple of years. Good win by the Birds especially being out rebounded by so m...

Re: at Nevada - 11/29/17 - 9 pm - MWN TV

I am not sure why perspectives have changed that much from the start of the season to even be more pessimistic about the team. We all knew about the injuries. We all knew Copeland was out. We all knew they would be up and down this year due to losing the big 3 from last year. Some are acting like th...

Does anyone know ECs status? Not sure if he reinjured himself or not based on previous posts. I am looking forward to seeing his skillset as he gets stronger and can contribute.

Re: Milik suspended for QU game

Just heard on the telecast replay that Pegler said Malik was late to a couple of meetings so was being held out for one game. Although not an earth-shattering violation, he still needs to get his act together and follow the basic rules.

Re: NDSU beats #1 Misery St... Where's invite?

People don't like GCU because they are for profit. That's fine to be a disqualifying factor if you're a P5 but not for a conference like the MVC. GCU is on target to be the next Wichita State, Butler, Gonzaga, etc. Great city, great coach, great AD, great fans, great atmosphere, great new stadium, ...

Re: Redbirds vs Broncos 11-17-17---ESPN2--12 Noon

This game started out bad right away with the hot shooting of BSU coupled with the lack of defensive intensity that DM is demanding. DM knows that defense wins games and he is requiring that "all in" mentality on defense that last year's team embraced. I will say that I saw everyone playing hard on ...

Outstanding win!! As has been stated already, MY's passing can be a difference maker. The MO State game will be exciting to see him go up against Alize Johnson. But the real difference maker is from everyone playing on D. The commentator -- LaPhonso Ellis -- when discussing MY's offensive abilities ...

Re: FGCU Predictions / Thread (11/11)

I think we all agree that the defense wasn't good. I too thought more zone would have stopped some of the penetration and scoring down low. A lot of missed assignments on the new guys. If you watched the game, DM tore into his players more than once during TOs which seemed to be related to missing a...

Re: FGCU Predictions / Thread (11/11)

This team not only showed a lot of heart but a lot of talent. Being shorthanded showed itself on the defensive end which caused everyone to stretch themselves beyond what they should have. Very impressed with the offense -- MY with 10 assists and Key with 7 assists. Rebounding hurt us bad (24 vs 48)...

Re: REDBIRDS! We may have injuries. It's only an exhibition....

Good exhibition game for the short-bench Birds. Not a lot of ball pressure but noticed our turnovers were at 16 -- a little high considering the opponent. Nice shooting by the team (48, 41, 68). Very impressed with our newcomers. Not sure why Malik didn't start but he is going to be a beast. Love wh...

I guess with all of the injuries it probably would make red-shirting anyone almost nil out of necessity. The bright side is that some guys will get more minutes and experience than what was planned.

Re: Chris Payton Verbals

I do believe it is important to get players from Illinois and locally. IMO, they are much more likely to stay and develop and not get homesick or leave for other reasons. Family and friends are still very important at age 18-22 as it always is. I don't have stats to back this up, but I feel our tra...
